GERING, Neb. (AP) – School officials say two students at Gering High School have been disciplined after an alcohol issue led to the discovery of a gun in a car on school property.
One student was expelled for a year and the other was suspended for 10 days. Principal Eldon Hubbard says the incident began Monday after an assistant principal smelled alcohol on one of the students while talking to him after lunch. An investigation led to another student who Hubbard says was under the influence.
Gering police were called. Hubbard says during a search for alcohol in one of the student’s car, officials found a handgun behind the seat.
